CHAPTER ONE

*1.0 Introduction*
Alcohol is a psychoactive substance that has been consumed by nearly all cultures in the world from time immemorial. It is a potent drug that causes both acute and chronic changes in almost all neurochemical systems.
Alcohol dependence is characterized by cognitive, physiological and behavioral patterns whereby the individual prioritizes obtaining or using the substance above any other activity. It is diagnosed in the individual when he/she has three or more of the following criteria: compulsion, withdrawal symptoms after cessation of the substance or active avoidance of the withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, increased amount of time spent obtaining and using the substance, persistent use despite harmful effects, narrowing of personal repertoire, lack of control or inability to cut down (WHO, 1993)
There are three general steps involved in treating the person: intervention, detoxification and rehabilitation. Psychiatric and medical emergencies are attended to first before this process. Rehabilitation includes the three major components: continual efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and relapse prevention.
Relapse is a recurrence of symptoms of a disease after a period of improvement.

Although there is no standard definition of relapse in treatment research, lack of abstinence is the most commonly used definition because of emphasis placed on abstinence by treatment providers. There are diverse consequences of alcohol abuse including the ultimate price of addiction which is death
CHAPTER TWO

*2.0 Literature Review*
In 2010, persons above the age of 15 years in Kenya consumed an average of 18.9 liters of pure alcohol, with males consuming 22.8 litres of pure alcohol and females consuming 9.6 liters of pure alcohol per annum. Worldwide, the consumption per capita was
6.2 litres of pure alcohol with males consuming 21.9 litres and females 8.9 litres per annum. (WHO, 2014) The consumption in Kenya is notably higher than the worldwide average.
Alcohol use disorders (AUDs) are found in 3.2% of the population with 1.4% having Alcohol Dependence (AD) in the African region. However, in Kenya, AUDs are found in 5.8% of the population, with 2.4% having AD. In comparison, Zambia, which is a low middle-income country like Kenya, AUDs are found in 4.5% of the population, with 1.4% having AD. In South Africa, which is an upper-middle-income country, AUDs are found in 5.6% of the population with 2.4% having AD. (WHO, 2014)
A national survey done in Kenya revealed that the lifetime use of alcohol was 59.3% among males and 21% among females, with the Central region recording rates of 31.8%, Eastern region 27.3% and Nairobi 24.4%. Out of all the respondents who consumed alcohol, 10% needed further diagnostic evaluation and treatment. With the use of AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) manual, 1.8% of Kenyans lay in zone 4, thus requiring specialist care as they have alcohol use disorders. (NACADA, 2013)
Analysis of the current usage of alcohol among respondents aged between 15-65 years show that the prevalence at the rate of 12.2 in 2017.The trend shows a decline from 13.6 in 2012 and 14.2% in 2017(NACADA,2017). The trend of alcohol and drug abuse entirely is on a downward shift. On the contrary, across the regions, Eastern, Nairobi and coast regions have recorded an increasing trend in the drug and alcohol abuse. Rehabilitation has been described as the relearning or reestablishing of healthy functioning, skills and the values as well as regaining the physical and emotional health(Musyoka,2013).Kurk (2015) further notes that rehabilitation is meant to provide full or partial restoration of physical, psychological or social function that had been dismissed by previous diseases or condition through counselling.
Harmful use of alcohol has been cited as the leading risk factor for death in males aged between the ages of 15-59 years with further evidences that women may be more vulnerable to alcohol related from a given level of alcohol use or a particular dividing pattern. Although severe and persistent alcohol and deer drug problems or SUD has been identified as a chronic disease (Spicer, 1993, O’Brian and Mchellan.1996) AOD addictions have been typically treated by using an intervention parading much the same as an acute medical
2.1 Problem Statement

Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) are a major source of health and social problems, hence a public health concern. A study done at Mathari National Teaching and Referral Hospital (MNTRH) found that 34% of patients afflicted had SUDs. (Ndetei, et al, 2008) According to Otieno, et al (2000), substances commonly abused were alcohol, tobacco, khat and cannabis. The consequences of substance abuse are varied. They include medical, socioeconomic and criminal justice effects and affect people of all ages (NIDA, 2012)
The harmful use of alcohol has negative impacts on the individual, community and country in terms of disease, social and economic issues. Globally, 7.6% of deaths in men and 4% in women are attributed to alcohol, with 5.9% in both sexes in 2012. Alcohol consumption contributes to 25% of deaths occurring in persons between the ages of 25-39 years globally, thus having a great impact on the workforce, leaving many young families without parents. (WHO, 2015)
At the national level, the government of Kenya has recognized the threat caused by alcohol and drug abuse and ratified many international and regional conventions dealing with the control of alcohol and drug abuse. The united states general assembly special session (UNGAAR, 1988) as cited in NACADA (2011) requested that member states including Kenya to address drug abuse in a holistic manner and that they set up effective drug prevention, treatment and rehabilitation programs which are culturally valid and they are based on the knowledge that is acquired from research as well as lessons derived from passed programs

CHAPTER THREE

*3.1 **Rationale for the Study*

*3.2 **Hypotheses*

*3.2.1 **Null hypothesis*. There is no association between social, economic and environmental factors and relapse after rehabilitation for alcohol dependence.
*3.2.2 **Alternate hypothesis*. There is an appreciation between social, economic and environmental factors, and relapse after rehabilitation for alcohol dependence.
*3.2.3 **Research question*. What are the factors associated with relapse after rehabilitation for alcohol dependence?

It is apparent to those who work in the addiction treatment field that relapse is a common and test stable recovery from substance use disorder (Sup) is generally not attained until the patient has achieved 4-5 years of continues recovery (White and Kurtz, 2006).Recent literature suggest that peer driven or support communities may be an effective approach to reduce the number of replaces of alcohol and after drug use (White et al, 2007). The primary goal of alcohol treatment in other areas of medicine is to have patients to achieve and maintain long-term remissions for alcohol dependent persons remission means the continuous maintenance of sobriety please continuing and growing concern among clinicians about the High rate of relapse among their patients and the increasingly adverse Consequences continuing diseases. For this reason play, preventing relapse is perhaps the fundamental issue in alcohol treatment today.
Rationale. Relapse is a major issue in addiction science identifying the predictor of reckless is critical for effective interventions in substance use disorder (Ransavile, 1986). Identification of these factors may help to better tailor services to the needs of service users and improve their effectiveness. Up to now that information is rather sparse already. Already identified dominance of relapse are: Personal situation, Body be changed (e.g. in the brain contextual factors and staff, treatment and program characteristics (Bottlender & Soyka, 2005; Becker 2008).
Alcohol dependency can be regarded as a chronic condition(Koob and Volkow,2009) characterized by high rate of relapse into a problematic drinking soon after initial successful treatment(Witkiewwitz and Marlat 2007).Insight Into other factors that promote relapse could provide a starting point for developing treatments that reduce relapse.
CHAPTER FOUR

*Objectives*

*4.1 **Broad Objective*

To determine the factors associated with relapse after rehabilitation for alcohol dependence.
4.2 Specific Objectives

• To determine if craving reduces after rehabilitation for alcohol dependence

• To determine if illness is associated with relapse

Questions
In this context, around 3 million or 5.1 of all the global deaths were attributed to alcohol consumption in the year 2016(WHO, 2018). There is no consensus on the definition of the term relapse (Witheiewwitz and Marlat, 2007)
i. Data collection instruments
ii. Socio-demographic questionnaire
iii. This has been the same by the researcher and gathers Arsenal information from the participants such as the year age, marital status, religion, education and employment
Audit
